Shandon makes meshed biopsy bags that are very easy to remove processed
specimens from.  They come in different sizes.

Subject:  bone marrow aspirates

Hello out there in Histoland!

Interested to know what we all are using to wrap/contain bone
marrow aspirates during processing.  Here in my lab we are
currently using cigarette papers, but these are a pain to unwrap
once soaked in wax.  I'm looking at trialing our small biopsy cages
that we use for some histo's, but am concerned about the aspirate
being too cellular, and flowing through the mesh.  Any
suggestions/comments would be welcome.
